Hypersonic Meteoroid Entry Physics gives a fascinating overview of the different
aspects related to meteoroid atmospheric entry. The book covers meteoroid observation
in the outer space; the description of the chemical-physical phenomena during
the atmospheric entry; recovery of the meteor on the earth surface and
meteorite chemical analysis.
The book, based on the lectures given during the
HyMEP course held in Erice in 2017, is addressed to students and researchers
with an interest in plasma chemistry, astrophysics and aerospace engineering.
It gives a comprehensive
overview of the present status of the investigation on meteoroid entry physics
while merging the knowledge of astrophysicists and the aerospace engineering communities.
